Guitarist Dmitriy Rodionov founded a project "Lenin & I" in 1999 in Snezhinsk. Music, or so to say, musical experiments by Dmitriy Rodionov, who is the only member of "Lenin & I" may be characterized as "industrial noise ambient". These are noise pictures made with the help of natural and artificial sounds, noise, voices and different acoustic an electric instruments, combined in a sort of a collage. Dmitriy Rodionovâs musical experiments of are mainly autobiographic and each of them has its story. All the compositions of an album are usually unified with one conception. Every following track is arising from the previous one and interlaces with the musical noise canvas. In each album, as in any intact product, there is beginning, than logical continuation and completion. Live performances of Dmitriy Rodionov take place with video installation which is their essential part. Odd plots of the video are a kind of screen version of noise pictures interpreted to the language of visual images. Creating them Dmitriy uses both natural and industrial landscapes, and stagings with decorations and actors' play. From 1999 to 2007 Dmitriy recorded the material for 9 albums. Each album has its own unique air and mood.
